A day after Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen told reporters the team has not talked to Bill Cowher, the Super Bowl XL champion said he doesn’t want to leave television just yet.
Cowher told “CBS This Morning” he’s open to coaching in the future but all but ruled himself out of contention for jobs this year.
“I’ve never closed the door,” Cowher said via Pro Football Talk. “But it’s highly unlikely any time in the near future you’ll see me coach.”
Personally, it’s tough to picture Cowher coaching a team outside of Pittsburgh, where he was born in 1957. Over the course of 15 seasons Cowher coached the Steelers for 161 wins and two Super Bowl appearances.
You can see his connection to the city in this 1996 pregame segment from Super Bowl XXX.
Cowher’s language indicates he hasn’t given up on coaching again, but he must be comfortable as a part of the CBS panel on “The NFL Today.”
